Time and space are the most precious and most difficult commodities today. However,this is mostly the case because of poor planning and ineffective management. In our experience,planning and innovation can be halved — if not solve — all problems and the same can be said for time and space.
Closets are the first to suffer the brunt of lack of time and space. For most people, the thought of ‘cleaning my closet’ means spending an entire day sorting, folding and organizing clothes only to have it get messed up again.One of the most annoying outcomes of a messy closet is how long it takes to get ready.You have no idea where what is kept and more time goes in trying to locate an item than in actually getting ready.
A simple item like a hanger, if used cleverly, can save you all this hassle:
Buy hangers in different colors/materials and designate a specific type of garment for each color or material.For instance, use wooden hangers only for coats; white ones for dresses, black for jackets and so on.This way, you know that if you’re looking for a jacket, it will only be in the black section or a dress will only be in the white section. This simple system of organization will save off several minutes of the time you spend in getting ready.
I have a lone steel hanger that I call my ‘Tomorrow’s hanger’. The night before, I decide what I’ll wear to work the next day and hang it on this hanger and leave it in my closet. Mornings before I leave for work are usually rushed and so I simply grab this steel hanger and wear whatever is hanging on i.e. don’t spend any time in the mornings sifting through my closet, trying to pick out something to wear, my steel hanger decides that for me.
I love specialized hangers. I have different ones for pants,ties,scarves and skirts and I am always on the lookout for more for other garments. I don’t like storing things in boxes.It does save space but it wastes time when you’re digging through a box trying to find one particular item.By using specialized hangers, I ensure that everything is visible and I am still saving space.
These are quick, easy tips that require a couple of hours of organization and reward you with great ease of use and save so much time and effort. Most household items are surprisingly versatile, you just need to do a little bit of planning, as I did with my hangers, and you will always be happy with the outcome.
